The Yamuna issue seeks to evoke the lost bond between a river and it’s people: to see the Yamuna for all it could be and all it once was, instead of simply what it has become today. It is only through the restoration of its waters, both in our imagination and our urban reality, that we can revive the river system that has sustained us for generations.
